#Coinbase Bug Prevents Canadian Users from Withdrawing Cryptocurrency Funds
An issue with Coinbase systems recently prevented users from Canada and a number of other countries from withdrawing funds, leading to frustration and concern among many customers.
The issue began around Aug. 1 and has reportedly also affected Venezuelan users. A Coinbase spokesperson told CCN that a bug was identified as the cause of the problem and that the system is once again operational.“The issue affecting cryptocurrency sends is now resolved. We identified a bug that affected Coinbase.com in a few countries and have successfully deployed a fix. Cryptocurrency sends through the Coinbase mobile apps were not impacted. We’d like to thank our customers for their patience while we resolved this issue.”Seemingly, withdrawals were shut off for a few days, which was enough to cause an uproar among customers throughout social media.
